    Thanks jet.

    I'd love to post up new stuff but I don't want to be a spammer so check out my website now and then. Whenever you guys want to do another LSxSF boot or shoe just let me know and I'll get it done. Or if anyone wants me to reissue the first one I can do it too as long as I get a few orders.


    I would be interested in a reissue.

    No stress Tom, I'm sure the guys here have no problem posting up your new goods when they arrive.

    This on the grant last would be phenomenal

    Thanks jet. Yes, a Grant lasted wingtip boot sounds very nice.

    Thanks for the order Teger. SS PTB on the Plaza w/CS is definitely a winner. I'll keep that in mind.

    I would if I could but I have no cigar at the moment.

    Grant would not be as sleek at the Plaza.

    sizing advice guys:

    If I wear a 7.5 E in the Allen Edmond last 8 (Thayer shoe to be exact)
    Would a 7.5 D in the Plaza last fit correctly?

    You should consider a lined, snuff suede chukka boot on the plaza last. Alden's unlined suede boot just doesn't do it for a lot of people.

    don't know AE. But I wear an 8D plaza... (sort of a roomy fit).

    vans=8.5
    Chucks=7
    common project=40

    don't know if that helps.

    The biggest hole in my footwear wardrobe right now is a pair of Alden LHS moccasins, but I also really, really want the Plaza-last half brogues on a single sole in #8 from Leathersoul. They are basically perfect shoes.

    Can someone explain leathersoul to me? It is an alden retailer, but does custom alden shoes? Or does it get special shoes from alden to sell exclusively at leathersoul
